of mythology in washington. going on the vast majority of jobs in the united states are produced by capital investment, business and software, not small business. it is done by big business. he is trying to make the point there's a lot of mythology in washington about rising taxes, eliminating jobs and it is just not the case. i don't, catheri, do you believe he believes this? and, or do you think he is saying it to try and toe the party line and make everybody happy? >> i can't speak for him and but i will respectfully disagree. according to the u.s. department of labor, 65% of all net new jobs come from small businesses. i don't know where he is getting his facts but i happy to know, let's talk about the ups stores, a competitor to fedex. they have opened over 100 new franchise locations this year. each one of those locations hires three to five employees. that is 300 to 500 new jobs from small businesses. melissa: yeah. >> i don't know that fedex has hired that many people this year. melissa: jim, i want to ask you because you know fred smith. what do you think about this comment? >> wel

of president obama sequestration policy. everyone here in washington is involved in this attack on our national defense capabilities from a financial perspective. the united states of america has limited funding. i would strongly urge us to use the $480 million being spent on the congo, instead being used to help to people in united states of america who are in need of help, or help reduce the deficit that was testified to be the greatest national security threat to the united states of america. it is a matter of priorities. i appreciate the very noble -- i emphasize the word noble -- effort to help people who are in harm's also way in various parts of the world. my colleague from florida mentioned somalia. certainly in vietnam we tried to do the noble things. we're in a different financial reality. in the absence of a national security interest in the congo, i am afraid that sequestration will force us to retract even though we may wish to the contrary. i yield back the remainder of my time. >> a couple of questions. sequestration is not only obama's, but also our responsibility. i believe we

the authority to reprogram funds to increase diplomatic security spending by $1.3 billion. in a washington where too often we see the recommendations of panels ignored or deferred, as they were for a long time on even the 9/11 commission, i think the secretarys swift action underscores how determined she is to apply the lessons of benghazi. clearly, mistakes were made. we learned of those yesterday in stark terms about the mistakes leading up to the attacks. the report makes that very clear. one of the most candid and important observations was the failure by certain leaders to see the forest through the trees. there were clear warning signs that the security situation in libya had deteriorated. going forward, it is important -- and i think it is important for all of us to think in these terms -- we need to do a better job of ensuring a free and open dialogue among ambassadors, the embassy security personnel, and officials in washington for decisions on funding and staffing levels and security. as we draw lessons, i want to be crystal clear about something else. congress also bears some responsi

today. the president is pulling the plug on his trip to hawaii to tend to urgent matters in washington. with tax hikes looming in less than a week, he's scheduled to return to the white house tomorrow, just as a deadlocked congress reconvenes days ahead of the so-called fiscal cliff. you're just six days from feeling this. now, first hit is coming on january 1st when your take home pay will drop by 2% because of a scheduled hike in the social security payroll tax. that's just the start. income taxes are set to climb too. and you'll notice that when employer gets to around the adjusted withholding, the government spending cuts, those are also scheduled for january 1st and bound to slow the economy and some argue they'll weaken the military. congress has seen this coming, but an effort to limit the damage failed last week. republican house speaker john boehner could not persuade enough members of his party to let tax rates rise on incomes over a million dollars while sparing everyone else. dana bash is our senior congressional correspondent. dana, this time tomorrow, the president is sup

in washington d.c. too among the i delegation. yes, i think this is the perfect path for a comeback if he is going to do that. he's going back to his old district where he's known well. he'll make a go.thishe it will either work or it won'ti but this is the most direct path back to public life and public service he could probably find.h >> ifill: if they run against each other it will be the most hotly covered race in the country. >> this is a republican seat so it's likely that a republican will hold that seat when it's over.en >> ifill: let's talk about the governor of new jersey. t we had been watching chris christie a lot whether it was to do super storm sandy or whether to campaign for mitt romney. s there's a lot of question about whether he would get the o challenge from the very popular mayor of newark, at least popular in some circles cory booker. >> what's interesting about this is that cory booker put out a web video which is how all the a politicians announce these days. he said i'm interested in obnning for senate. that job isn't actually open at this point. senator frank lau
